## UNIFORM CIRCULAR MOTION

Introduction Circular motion is the motion of bodies travelling in circular paths. Uniform circular motion occurs when the speed of a body moving in a circular path is constant. This can be defined as motion of an object at a constant speed along a curved path of constant radius. When acceleration (variation of velocities) is directed towards the centre of the path of motion it is known as centripetal acceleration and the force producing this centripetal acceleration which is also directed towards the centre of the path is called centripetal force. Angular motion This motion can be described as the motion of a body moving along a circular path by giving the angle covered in a certain time along the path of motion. The angle covered in a certain time is proportional to the distance covered along the path of motion. The radian One radian is the… Read More »UNIFORM CIRCULAR MOTION
